Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What if Nintendo does the same thing with Used games?

Let's say Hypotehtically Nintendo goes the same route as MS, and lets say Sony is as well (No confirmation yet), lets say they are the last to do it, because the others have done it.

If it meant more 3rd party support for them, would you be ok with that? I feel once this pandora's box has been opened, it is too late to change it. Having already gone 100% digital with my MASTER RACE PC, I could see myself continuing to support Nintendo if they followed suit under those conditions. So long as they better merge their online purchases (Wii U upstairs and downstairs under our "Family" account has access to the games we purchased, or whatever scenario you could envision).

''People who stayed home won 2012, Sony won 2013, Nintendo won 2014.''

no way, Iwata is not an asshole.
I bet EA realized they could not make Nintendo do that, not the ORIGIN theory!

No Iwata may not be, but all companies answer to Investors, yes? Nintendo is a giant publisher/developer, how much money could they make off Mario taking a bite out of the pie everytime it is resold? If every 3rd party sees things the same way, can they truly not do it?

I never used my steam account on another computer, but is it possible to play games on my steam account on multiple PCs? Would it be possible to play Xbox live account games on the xbox of another person by logging in?

If so, and you're already gone full digital on PC MASTER RACE :) then would it be an issue? It's blurry for me if anyone can give me some light on this.

i dont think that's going to happen. If it did, i imagine it would turn off a lot of people, and seeing that they would now have three consoles with similar online fee structure, they will most likely go with the more powerful system. the only thing that would save N is the first party exclusives. But I guess that being the only backwards compatible system will help sell units also.

The strange thing is that I don't think Nintendo has such a big problem with used games.

Cause they don't do price protection and all, all those used games are like at most $5
off.

I wonder if Mario games and the like are collectathons to subliminally brainwash people to collect and not resell.
